Instead of Material Items, Gift an Experience
There are methods to decrease trash at home and via your goodwill toward others. For example, instead of sending a holiday, birthday, or anniversary card via the mail, try sending an ecard.
Furthermore, to save waste, offer the gift of an experience rather than a large object with extensive packing. For example, if you have a skier friend or family member, give them a gift voucher to their favorite slope. Everyone enjoys going out to eat, so give them a gift voucher to their favorite restaurant. Consider how you may make a difference in someone’s life through an experience rather than a tangible product.
Holiday Waste Management Trash Tips
On holidays, your trash service may have special requirements or may need to make alternative arrangements for pickup due to the abundance of trash. If you live in an area with a recycling program, the busy Christmas season may influence how recycling is collected. Instead of taking your recyclables and garbage to the curb, check with your trash company to ensure that pickup is not adjusted. Furthermore, if you’ve planned to have your Christmas tree removed, make sure it’s devoid of decorations and tinsel.
